The Skills Gap
87% of employers in the U.S. feel that graduates are not prepared for success in the workforce. Top reasons include lack of communication skills, critical thinking, adaptability, EQ, and resilience. Simply put, there’s a lack of soft skills. Houston, we have a gap!
Why Does This Gap Exist?
- Technology is eroding soft skills in the next generation due to an over dependence on devices.
- Schools and universities don’t teach these skills rendering graduates unprepared for the world of work.
The result is a skills gap that has serious consequences for your business, including:
“Half of Millennials and 75% of Gen-Z’ers have left jobs for mental health reasons.” (cnbc.com)
“70% of Millennials report being disengaged at work…This costs companies $450 billion a year”. (Gallup)
Millennials and Gen Z are known as the ‘job-hopping generations’. According to Gallup, 21% of millennials say they’ve changed jobs within the past year, more than three times the number of non-millennials.
